Not the best market timing either....
Overpriced I doubt it will sell. You can buy a brand new thunder jet with a trailer for a few bucks more. I think it’s 15k over priced in my opinion
When it was listed at $46k I thought it was a nice boat at a fair price. Three weeks later now posted at $60k it seems crazy!
Ya but Stizz, it’s ALUMINIUM.. and get this.. it’s WELDED together. If you say aluminium like a British person it’s sounds pretty fancy.
Nice little 17 double eagle package https://nanaimo.craigslist.org/boa/d/parksville-double-eagle/7094930520.html
That Arima is a Sea Legend, not a Ranger. Bigger, wider, deeper and self bailing. Sharper dead rise as well . Very different from the rest of the Arima line-up.
We had a 4.3 in a 185 Malibu which was fine for a smaller boat but not a 24' . I would think that boat would need need a 200 or 250 hp outboard to really go.
pretty nice package for the price
That’s a tuna boat according to some people!
Nice 17' hourston
(2 stroke motor though)
Nothing wrong with new two strokes. I personally prefer them by far. But that’s just me
Owned the same model a few years ago that's a good price on a well built boat
Obviously it's no Commander 30 but here's a sweet looking 34ft Double Eagle with twin Volvo diesels...I didn't know DE made boats this big...was this a commercial hull for them?
The ad needs more pics...I'd like to see more of the interior, cockpit, and engines.
I didn't know they did a 34' either. It doesn't look very Double Eagle at all. It does say "one of a kind" though. I guessing it's a DE hull but otherwise a fully custom build.
A search for "34' Double Eagle Sportfish" also turns up this 1986 one that was for sale at Thunderbird Marine. Similar hull but not quite the same topsides, has the more "chunky" DE look:
That has gorgeous lines. Almost thought it was a hourston.
Thought on that 17.2 Hourston:
The seller writes"...engine well height extension..."
If that boat's motor well sits low, as it did on a boat I used to own, it's a concern.
The motor well on the hourston already sits high and the transom is very high I never took any water in through the stern
With what is going on in the economy / stock market, I expect someone on here to score themselves a sweet deal on a 40 ft “centre console” with quad 300s out of Florida in the near future!
